Great blog.
I am pretty sure at least 3 of the 5 DC shots are of a condemned housing project. They are being replaced by luxury housing. From disastrous for poor people to unattainable by poor people...

Hi,
I'm starting a blog and wanted to use one of the photos here on your blog... the photo shows a (black) guy standing in front of a row of houses, with a white factory behind. The subject of this page of my blog is about the inequalities of life for blacks vs whites, and this photo shows in part the disparity I'm looking to bring to the readers' attention.
Is the photo in the public domain? Or is it yours? I have placed the photo on my page, but not sure who to credit the photo to. Please take some time to read the page (http://web.mac.com/dynamitejet/Site/Blog/Entries/2008/7/14_WHITE_PRIDE_Vs_BLACK_PRIDE%3ATHESE_ARE_DANGEROUS_TIMES_WE_LIVE_IN....html) and let me know if you are happy for me to use the photo.
With thanks,
Justin

Blacks are lazy and blame whites for all the problems they have. Many rappers, who many blacks idolize, brag about "previous careers" as drug dealers. Selling drugs is a practice that is very detrimental to a community, and, though it brings in immense profit, is not in any way shape or form a respectable way to make money. So why do they brag about it and why do we idolize them? They chose the easy way out, drug money is easy money! Some might think, "Oh well it was the only way for them to make money for their families..." Thats a load of crap. Gangsters use most of their money for drugs for themselves, cars, rims, guns, and jewelry. Another commonly used black excuse is that the system is corrupt and that white people bring drugs, guns, and liquor into black communities. What brings these things into communities is demand. If white people brought drugs into black communities, why would they spend billions of dollars putting criminals behind bars and prosecuting suspects? If white people wanted to get rid of black people, they wouldn't spend any money fighting against gangs and such, because dumb ass blacks would just wipe themselves out, and we would be left with the blacks that have worked hard. When my ancestors immigrated to this country, long after slavery had been over, from Ireland, they had nothing, and were discriminated against just like blacks. My great great grandfather worked as a tanner in a factory all of his life. My great grandfather was a mailman, and my grandfather was a spy in the C.I.A. My dad is a lawyer and we are well off. See a trend here? Each generation improves in economic status through HARD WORK. Standing on a corner selling drugs is easy work, and it is poisonous to a community.

In other words, shut the fuck up all you dumb ass people who sympathize with blacks. Slavery is over, so get over it. Be happy that your race was improved during slavery by selective reproduction. Fucking dumb ass lazy niggers.

Similar scenes can be found in areas of Toronto. The politicians like to use the phrase "world-class city" and
spew platitudes about good planning and accountability. At the moment we have a world class a.h. as mayor. He
is going to balance the budget by selling off the city's housing stock.
The political atmosphere in this city is cancerous, malignant and getting worse by the day. The wealthy will always fight to preserve their prerogatives.

Are the worst of these pics from the area around Nationals Stadium? Not exactly a fair depiction, since they're coming down to make room for new housing. I'm not saying D.C. has no slums; it does. But I'm not seeing them here.

Who the fuck do you think yOu are? That was one the most unintelligent, mediocre, and disgusting thoughts I have ever read. I'm white and because of people like you who demonstrate a nonchalant and idiotic attitude toward this issue, that nothing gets accomplished. Our constitution says every one is equal in this country called America, and it would be nice if retards like you would wipe THEMSELVES out. America doesn't need morons like you, because our country is so much better than your dumb fucking opinion. Glad you know how to excercise your right to freedom of speech, asshole.

If you knew the English language and how to type it properly, then maybe more people would take you seriously.

Kid from Ohio. YOU are the reason more and more young people are having to live "ghetto". You and probably half the kids in your town waste everybody else's time by obviously skipping school and becoming and illiterate fuckin idiot, how about you get an education and get a good career so your family doesn't have to live in the ghetto anymore. Just because you live in a bad area doesn't mean your automatically gonna fight or do drugs, you can say no and stay away from bad shut. Stop trying to brag about your hood being the hardest and most ghetto. See if a school will let you restart from kindergarten so you can learn to speak properly. Dipshit

WHAT THE FUCK PEOPLE!!!!!
Anonymous who the fuck are you talk shit on anyone here you obviously have no fucking idea what your talking about... and african american's im not a racist or anything but seriously it's not about the color of your skin any more this it's like your trying to have a grudge match against whites
If i went into some neighborhood in D.C. i would probably be shot just for being white... I have several black friends and white friends and polynesion friends but really it doesnt matter with skin color really it isnt about that im not the richest man in the world either in fact im pretty damn poor but I try hard and anyone else who actually tries hard deserves credit where credit is due... and to let you guys know I support rappers because as ugly as lil wayne, lil jon, or any other rapper is they worked damn hard to be where they are at. i this world doesnt need a battle against whites and blacks, to me thats not logical, smart, productive... etc, etc... oh and one more thing ANONYMOUS I'M CALLING YOUR SHIT OUT IT'S EASY TO BE A RACIST BEHIND A FUCKING KEYBOARD GOT TO D.C. AND SAY THAT SHIT TO PEOPLES FACES BUT YOU WONT BECAUSE YOUR A FUCKING PUSSY... OH AND BY THE WAY YOU NEED TO LEARN HOW TO SPELL SIMPLE FOUR LETTER WORDS FUCKING RETARD
